Introducing Sitestat Countername Detector

As a Web Analytics consultant working for various clients like Schiphol Amsterdam Airport, Dutch Government and others I encounter the use of Web Analytics tool Sitestat (Nedstat, now a comScore company) a lot.

Sitestat is a really cool web analytics package which allows you to use un-aggregated data at all times. no need to set up funnels beforehand, etc. Sitestat uses so called CounterNames. These are essential pieces to identify your pages by and you need them at many occassions.

Of course you can use the Sitestat Toolbar for Internet Explorer, but being a mac user and having a large preference of using Chrome or Firefox I decided I needed to built something to show me the counternames without having to dig deep into code and search for it.

I used Yoast his greasemonkey script to detect analytics packages a lot before I started using WASP, so I thought it’s fairly easy to use the same functionality to search for the countername on pages using Sitestat instead. Hence I created the script to do just so!  Head over to the page with some more background information and instructions on how to install the Sitestat Countername Detector and please let me know in the comments what you think about it or how I could improve it!

    Hi Martijn,

    As a request can your tool display Stream Sense labels including those for Windows Media Player.
